Walton has been out with a pinched nerve in his back since Nov. 16.
"I feel great, my back feels great," Walton said. "So hopefully all will go well with the doctor [Monday] and I can get back out there and practice."
Walton was averaging 3.7 points and 1.9 assists in 10 minutes a game before he was injured. Though he played sparingly before he was hurt, Walton's absence has been felt prominently since starting small forward Ron Artest was suffered a concussion on Christmas night.
Luke Walton will meet with doctors on Monday and hopes to be cleared to practice with the Lakers.
